Forward looking statements

Forward Looking Statements

  • This presentation may contain forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about our beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are based on management's beliefs, as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, management. Because such statements are based on expectations as to future economic performance and are not statements of fact, actual results may differ materially from those projected. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. The risks and uncertainties which forward-looking statements are subject to include, but are not limited to: the possibility that the increased volume of open orders will not continue; the possibility that the acquisition of Commonwealth Land Title, Lawyers Title and United Capital Title will have unforeseen negative effects, including if those companies have undisclosed liabilities or if we are not successful in retaining key producers; changes in general economic, business and political conditions, including changes in the financial markets; weakness or adverse changes in the level of real estate activity, which may be caused by, among other things, high or increasing interest rates, a limited supply of mortgage funding or a weak U. S. economy; our potential inability to find suitable acquisition candidates, acquisitions in lines of business that will not necessarily be limited to our traditional areas of focus, or difficulties in integrating acquisitions; our dependence on operating subsidiaries as a source of cash flow; significant competition that our operating subsidiaries face; compliance with extensive government regulation of our operating subsidiaries; and other risks detailed in the “Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information,” “Risk Factors” and other sections of the Company’s Form 10-K and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Managing the title business

Managing The Title Business

  • Monitor operating metrics every week

    • Open and closed order counts, headcount, efficiency metrics

  • React quickly – utilize the “order lag” to our advantage

  • Aggressively reduce headcount as order volumes decline; slow to add headcount when volumes improve

  • Heavily weighted to variable incentive compensation; bonus and commissions are a large part of compensation

  • Minimum goal of an 8%-10% pre-tax margin over a twelve-month period

    1 st quarter 2009 summary results

    1st Quarter 2009 Summary Results

    Open order count (in thousands)

    • January: Pre-tax loss of $11 million as the legacy FNF business was profitable, but the Lawyers/ Commonwealth operations lost more than $17 million on a pre-tax basis

    • February: Pre-tax loss of approximately $5 million, as legacy FNF was again slightly profitable and the Lawyers/ Commonwealth operations improved to a pre-tax loss of only $5 million

    • March: $15 million in pre-tax earnings, but those results included a $20 million synergy bonus and $6 million in OTTI losses. Before those two items, we generated approximately $41 million in pre-tax earnings, which we believe to be a more meaningful representation of our operating performance in March, as legacy FNF generated a high single digit margin for the month and the Lawyers/Commonwealth operations recorded a mid-single digit margin

    • Lawyers/Commonwealth run rate cost synergies of $231million

    Closed order count (in thousands)

    1 Includes one-time pre-tax bonus accrual of $20.4mm related to the achievement of Lawyers/Commonwealth cost synergies and OTTI losses of $5.7mm related to several equity securities.
